Fiat is currently working on updating the 500L, which has always been far from replicating the regular 500’s cuteness on the street.
The facelift is expected to include new headlights with LED signatures, new fog lights, new 3D-effect taillights, and according to our spy photographers, new front and bumpers, though it’s hard to tell right now with certainty because of all that camouflage.
The updates should be similar to the ones made to the regular 500, which means a more up-to-date interior with infotainment upgrades, a bigger display (7″ TFT for flagship versions) and better materials throughout the cabin.
Last year, when Fiat pulled the wraps off their updated 500 model, we found out that it also came with new trim options, better soundproofing, and an updated automatic gearbox – which is something that might happen for the facelifted 500L as well.
In terms of engines, European buyers will still get to enjoy small Euro6 petrol and diesel units, while US buyers might have to contend with just the 1.4-liter four-cylinder MultiAir turbo unit currently available to them. But we’ll know more in terms of powertrains as the 500L will near its launch date.
Speaking of which, that could happen at any time during 2017.
